Weekend Mosaic Course (Indirect Method)

Weekend Indirect Method Mosaic Course for Improvers & Beginners

Date:    Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd April 2017.

Times:   Saturday from 10am till 6pm & Sunday from 10am till 4pm.

In this course learners will receive an introduction into the art of mosaic making learning how to create a mosaic mosaic out of a photography, drawing or as a copy of another mosaic using the indirect method.

We will use ceramic tesserea and glass vitreous laying it onto paper first (reverse or indirect tecnique) and applying the complete piece onto a tile or marmox base which can be for interior or exterior use. The design will be something fairly simple that you will choose and submit to us in advance.

In only two days you will complete a unique mosaic piece going through all stages from designing to grouting!

Improvers or experienced mosaic artists wanting to further develop their mosaic making skills will be guided on how to apply colour theory into their work, how to translate a photography into mosaics, how to plan an effective composition and choose the apropriate andamento to your work as well as earning speed and precision to cut and shape ceramic and glass tiles.

All Southbank Mosaics courses are tailored to each individual's learning aims.

You will complete a mosaic of size around 20cm x 25cm including a space for a border (size migth vary according to your design), which is not a large size so that we ensure that you are able to complete your piece by Sunday. We have a large range of tiles in many colours, including pre-cut tiles. All materials are provided. Also, you don't need to be good at drawing for this course as we have various techniques to transfer a design and full tuition and support is provided - you just need to be interested and enthusiastic.
